Quote of the month

"Columnists need obsessions, even addictions. We simply couldn’t keep turning out 900 words on a regular schedule if we weren’t allowed to indulge ourselves every now and then. We recognize that readers don’t necessarily share our cravings, but occasionally we are compelled to ask for your tolerance. Sometimes the only way to make a deadline is to ingest our literary drug of choice and report on the experience. If you read Booklist, you know what I’m talking about. My friend Michael Cart has Freddy the Pig, and I have pulp-paperback cover art.
-- Bill Ott, "Confessions of a Pulp Junkie," Booklist, v105 n5 (Nov. 1, 2008), p. 80.
